Really? Have they expressed why they get on TLS?


Yes, to see how interested you are in their schools versus what you say. To see what the general buzz is about their schools, to search by their schools name. Etc etc. At the last conference I was at, about a year ago, one admissions dean said he could figure out about 10% of his applicant pool on TLS. They have, after all, a ton of info on you. Also some people use their TLS names same as their email addresses, etc etc.


Makes sense. Thanks for the info! Time to cleanse all comments related to sacrificing and or satanic pacts for scores.

Actually, the user lc started the catvatar phenomenon. She was a 177, 3.7X user. Had a clean sweep of the T14, except for Virginia because Virginia was engaging in aberrant actions, such as giving Dillards to 168s, and ignoring high 170 users for the purpose of yield protection and (it is presumed) to shore up their medians.

Let me try not to get annoyed at you for expecting someone to find a stranger's Twitter account through Google, not knowing their real information nor what they look like/present on their account. Nice try

Those of you who are stationed somewhere until a certain time... You could always ask for a deferral if that is in your interests.

BasedVulpes - totally unrelated to everything but I don't know how I didn't mention that I also regularly obsess over Crap Taxidermy. Stalking that account gets me through 96% of my work weeks. :lol:

I didn't consider any of that when I was setting this up. I may need to start over when I start applying. :shock:

This may have no relevance at all, but on my LSAT Status page the percentile associated with my previous test score just changed.

Maybe they have all of the scores compiled and that pushed percentiles?

I'm also really impressed that upwards of 10% of a T14 pool frequents these fora.
